Regional Administrator Allen Thomas Joins SBA National Small Business Week Bus Tour in Atlanta-Departs in Raleigh


As proclaimed by President Biden, during National Small Business Week, we celebrate America’s small businesses and their enormous contributions to American life and prosperity.

Join us for Day 2 of the 2022 National Small Business Week Virtual Summit, “Building a Better America Through Entrepreneurship,” today, May 2 through May 5 to get advice and connect with industry experts, learn about tools and federal resources, and get critical information needed to seize new opportunities. 

During National Small Business Week, we are also hitting the road on a bus tour. Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman will visit nine cities across the country and, in collaboration with the SBA’s local offices, join local elected officials to celebrate America’s 32.5 million small businesses who have played an integral role in powering our nation’s historically strong economic comeback. The tour will take place May 2-6 and feature stops in San Francisco, California; Denver, Colorado; Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia; Columbia and Richburg, South Carolina; Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; and Norfolk, Virginia.

Follow the conversation on social media with hashtag, #SmallBusinessWeek.

National Small Business Week events are made possible every year due in part to the support of cosponsors.
